Bueno Search Removal Guide

Do you know what Bueno Search is?

Bueno Search is a browser plugin that you most of the time installed on your computer along with freeware programs. It may seem as though Bueno Search is a dangerous computer infection, because some users think it enters their systems without their permission. However, that is not exactly true as you agree to this plugin being installed on your PC when you set up a program the plugin comes bundled with. It is highly recommended, however, to remove Bueno Search from your PC in order to avoid various security risks.

As it has been mentioned above, Bueno Search is not a malicious infection. One of the reasons we cannot consider it a browser hijacker is the fact that Bueno Search provides removal instructions at info.buenosearch.com. It also allows you to find out more about its Terms of Use, Privacy Statement and so on. According to the official website, Bueno Search is supposed to help you save time, which you usually “waste combing through pages of search results”. However, the description of the service is very ambiguous, because it does not say exactly how the search engine and the application improve your overall search experience.

Also, Bueno Search is said to be free of charge, because that is what its creators “believe in”. This is how they explain “teaming up” with other software companies in order to distribute their product. From this we can infer that bundling Bueno Search with other freeware applications is its main way of distribution. Hence, when you download a freeware app from a third party website, be sure that you read through the installation carefully, otherwise you might end up having additional programs installed on your PC, and some of those programs you may not even need.

Although Bueno Search is not a malicious infection, it could prove to be risky due to a number of commercial advertisements displayed on the site. These ads could be embedded by malicious third parties with intention to infect you with malware. It is also possible for Bueno Search to save all the information on your web browsing habits, because it uses cookies. This information later on could be leaked to a third party. In order to prevent that, you should really consider removing Bueno Search from your PC.
